It is already September bloggies, and I, for one, am excited about it. It is my birthday month, an awesome excuse to stuff cakes into my mouth many times, Oh also, I’m being celebrated. Yay me! I will be
going coming home this month. There is a staycation in the agenda, and I took one of this month’s Mondays off. Things are looking rainbow-ey for me. How about you, how does your September look like?
My last week goal was resting and recouping. Now that I think about it, it feels like I kinda cheated. I mean I rest all the time. It is my hobby. It is my nature. My tombstone would say “Born to RR”. It’s like saying to eat a cake as a goal, except of course if the cake is Vienna’s Sacher-Torte.
So yeah, my bad, and because of last week’s not-a-goal goal, I put extra effort to come up with this week’s. I was deciding between adapting Erika’s (Happy Birthday Erika!) gratitude attitude and Nicole’s budget envelopes (I certainly can make do with some money management this month; when I was a kid, birthdays would fatten my piggy bank, now it is the complete opposite). But this evening, a conversation with Hulk nudged me that I could be a happier. Much happier, If only I would pause and spend some time “thinking” about it, so I choose gratitude first.
This week my weekly wish is to write four things I am grateful/happy about just before going to bed.
I think it is an attainable goal, especially with all the cakes eating that is going to happen in the near future. More importantly, I believe this goal will make me a happier geek by the end of the week.
How about you? Have you ever set a goal to make yourself happier? If yes, tell me how do you do that? and If not, why don’t you?
At this very moment, I am grateful for the pouring rain outside my window and for Melyssa, the awesome girl behind the Weekly Wishes linkup.
